37.5cl corked and caged bottle via trade. Massive thanks to Ryan for this one! It pours a clean dark copper color with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet acidic tangy winey with notes of blueberries, wine barrel, esters, lemon juice, light balsamic vinegar, tart cherries. Taste is also big sweet fruity tart acidic and lightly funky. Plenty notes of blueberries, lemon juice, tart cherries, light vinegar, white wine barrel and esters. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, very tasty and balanced, top notch

Bottle shared by Mike. Murky mahogany red with almost no head. Not as tart as I’d imagined. Great berry fruit with some funk. Pretty well-rounded.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thin head with a deep brown brew that is pretty cloudy when held to a light.
Very rich aroma.. very fruity and only mildly funky... tart berries.. whaffs woodiness .. grape bubblegum or soda..
tannic berry skins and an abundant fruitiness... some black cherry essence... maybe even some black caps... more oak than the nose .. a little lactic ... some wet leather and wild strawberry essence shows as it warms ... fantastic body for a sour... carbonation seems abundant but helps balance the slightly heavier mouthfeel ...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared, thanks to Santa bytemesis for sending this! Deep reddish brown with short lasting beige head that leaves no lacing. Bitter herbs, dried red fruits, overripe berries, peach, dried apple, sherry, balsamico, light caramel. Light sweet and sour with medium bitterness. Medium bodied with prickly carbonation. Nice, but a bit too herbal for me. Still a pleasure to try it.

Lots of berries and grapes in the aroma. Vinegary taste, with good length. Not a lot of balance.
